You covet but do not possess


For John, BLUFAlign your will with God's Perfect Will.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Following up on my last post, this is the conclusion of the Second Reading, The Epistle of Saint James, 3:16-4:3:
You covet but do not possess.
You kill and envy but you cannot obtain;
you fight and wage war.
You do not possess because you do not ask.
You ask but do not receive,
because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.
Well, I do believe in prayer and in praying for things, but Saint James gives us some good advice here.
